Yes.  There is an early Andre Norton book I hadn't seen before.  Pretty bad, honestly.

Okay, but I lose the things I use as bookmarks. I put them down when I start reading, and then by the time I’m done reading I’m somewhere else and I use something else to mark  the spot. I wouldn’t want to abuse something that had that much effort put into it!

Yes, I'm similar, I've lost uncounted bookmarks.

They don't all necessarily spark my joy, but that's a stupid criterion for books anyway. I have other methods of sorting. The main one is: Will I want or need to read it again? If so, it stays.

Not that I haven't stored my books in stacks before (I have some stacked right now, in fact) but the unstable stacks over in the front right of the photo are probably damaging those books and I'm  not okay with that...

Hi, I'm [Kyria] and I'm a book-aholic.  I started reading when I was four years old, and nothing and no one has ever been able to stop me from continuing...

I believe that compression is damaging to the lower books of even the neatest large stack. As in the sizes shown, not any standard piling/stacking situation.
